Listen On


In this enlightening conversation with Matan lecturer and Kitvuni scholar Yael Leibowitz, we discuss several examples of the biblical ‘Other’- such as Yitro-  whose role it often is to contrast Israelite behavior.

Our podcast series on Shemot focuses on Identity and Nationality Formation.  We’re going to try and address the big biblical themes of slavery, redemption, society building, and commitment to a binding code of law as well as explore together with our guests how we can anchor these big ideas in our modern lives.
